Vodafone has recently signed a deal with RIM to work on “consumer services” for BlackBerry. What those services are remain a bit of a mystery. Maybe it’s simply the deployment of BlackBerry Unite!, but maybe RIM’s looking for a bit of outside help to make something new. The centralized server that all BlackBerry devices go through is a convenient way of deploying new services that has so far only really been used for e-mail. What could Vodafone and RIM be cooking up, hmm?
